Kitchen-ec2 2.1.0 released!

Ohai kitchen users,

We’re happy to announce the release of kitchen-ec2 2.1.0 which includes two exciting improvements.

Automatic SSH keypair and Security Group creation

Users can now omit specifying the aws_ssh_key_id and/or security_group_ids in which case they will be automatically created and destroyed during the respective kitchen actions. If you’ve used Packer before, this behaviour is pretty much identical.

Ohai hint only created for Chef provisioners

This is a long overdue fix for our non-Chef users that means the driver will non longer attempt to create an Ohai hint for provisioners that aren’t Chef. If using Chef 13+ this hint isn’t strictly needed in most cases but is still useful for pre-13 testing and new/esoteric instance types.
